Day 5


Away from moorland and upland areas, curlew have nested in traditional hay meadows which are now much rarer on farmland. Their nesting sites may now be grazed by cattle and/or sheep, or in a crop of silage or hay. This pair are nesting in cattle grazed pasture with rush (juncus) suggesting that there is damp ground for them to feed in nearby.

Curlew are relatively site and mainly partner faithful, returning to the same area and sometimes the same field year after year.
